About This Blog

Everything you want lies on the other side of learning to trust yourself. Take a chance. Have faith. You already know who you are, what you want, and where you want to go.”
Vironika Tugaleva

Take These Chances

I chose the blog name because it is a lyric from “Ants Marching” by the Dave Matthews Band.  That song is particularly sentimental to me since it was the first song of theirs that I ever heard and I’ve been a fan ever since.

It’s also a nice reminder to live my life in the moment and take chances – because if you don’t then you miss out on opportunities for growth (and fun)!

My Blogging Experience

I’m not entirely new to blogging, just several years out of practice. My first blog was on OpenDiary back in 1999. Over the next 11 years, I moved to Xanga (2001) and finally settled at LiveJournal (2006).  I stopped blogging in 2010.

What Am I Doing Here?

This is a lifestyle/personal blog. It will most likely contain posts focused on:

  • Parenting & Family
  • Pinterest related things – crafts I try, etc.
  • Photography – I take mostly nature related pictures.

I have no plans at this time (March 2016) to pursue any income generating activities on this blog. I just want to have an outlet for whatever is on my mind. I’m aware of all the buzz online about creating a ‘personal brand’ but at this point it’s just not where I’m at.

I’m interested in making new friends – please feel free to leave me a message or comment on a post!  I’d love to hear your thoughts!
